Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Announces 2012-2013 On Screen/In Person Tours
Baltimore, MD - August 22, 2012 - Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation has announced its 2012-2013 On Screen/In Person film touring program. On Screen/In Person is designed to bring some of the best new independent American films and their respective filmmakers to communities across the mid-Atlantic region.
The tour will travel to eight different venues across the mid-Atlantic region during fall 2012 and spring 2013. Host sites range from the State University of New York at Oswego to the Rehoboth Beach Film Festival in Delaware and from Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania to the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia.

This year's films include documentary and narrative works that explore both deeply personal and important societal issues through the lens of six extraordinarily talented filmmakers. Selected films include:
Gen Silent directed by Stu Maddox; Runaway directed by Amit Ashraf; Dislecksia: The Movie directed by Harvey Hubbell V; Cafeteria Man directed by Richard Chisolm; Abel Raises Cain directed by Jenny Abel; and What We Need Now Is The Impossible! directed by Sam Green.

The filmmakers will tour with their films to the venues and work with the host sites to develop community activities that provide audiences context and greater appreciation for their respective work and the art of film.
The purpose of On Screen/In Person is to provide exhibition opportunities for independent filmmakers; provide access to film programming of excellence to audiences across the mid-Atlantic region; and to provide communities with opportunities that engender greater understanding of the filmmakers work and enhance the viewing experience.

On Screen/In Person is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts' Regional Touring Program.
